Shoes for Fashion Slaves

A little bit of whimsy for your enjoyment.

Prada Jumbo







My personal favorite.







 





















Shoe 'tem Down



Marie Antoinette Shoes

Full Steam Ahead



Tea Petrovic 



Tutankhamun's Gold Sandals


( I tried and tried but I couldn't embed the video. Google is a hot mess.)



She's going shopping shopping for shoes
She wants them in magenta and caribbean blue
Platinum and buttercup lilac and black
They fill a bucket up and laugh behind her back
Imelda baby Imelda baby what to do
All the poor people saying that they gotta quit paying for you

In New York and Paris on the Champs Elysée
They see her coming from a long long way
They clap their hands together when they get her in the store
She's gonna wanna get more more more and more and more
Imelda baby Imelda baby what to do
All the poor people saying that they gotta quit paying for you

Everyone's gone Jackie O
She was a regular here
We thought madame would like to know
We've got the blood red rouge right here

Now we've got all of madame's requisites and all in madame's size
Madame's taste is truly exquisite she must accessorise
The belts are alligator the bags are kangaroo
Enchanté may I say the jade was made for you
Imelda baby Imelda baby what to do
All the poor people saying that they gotta quit paying for you
Imelda baby Imelda baby what to do
All the poor people saying that they gotta quit paying for you

  5. What a wonderfully unique collection. I liked the Little Prince ones too but I actually laughed when I saw the pair with teeth for soles. Can't you just see Jamie Dimon wearing them when he dines with Lloyd Blankfein?

  9. What an amazing find. Where do you find such things? I would be delighted to wear the Little Prince ones and the gold, flat Nefertiti sandals though they seem to be rendered in brass.
    Cheers.

  11. Must admit to having a bit of a shoe fetish. While my body insists on stylish orthopedics, I covet my favorites on Zappos.

    What a wonderfully eclectic selection!!! I am drawn to the tea petrovic. They look as though they may have been spun by spiders.

  12. I can't decide between Jesus and the horse's hooves... I imagine that would tell a therapist WAY too much about me! ;)
